is the ambassador to the u.n. she has been mentioned as a possible replacement for hillary clinton as secretary of state. republican senators john mccain, lindsey graham, they have already said no way, they will hold up her confirmation because of benghazi and comments made days afterwards explaining the attacks. at the time, she said it could have been because of this anti-muslim movie, as we said, but now that's sort of been disproved. i guess the question is -- well, first, listen to. this then i want to ask you -- listen to some of the sound that we have from obama and mccain this week. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> that statement is really remarkable in that if the president thinks that we are picking on people, he really does not have any idea of how serious th

[inaudible] she said if it was a spontaneous demonstration. it was not. there was telling evidence at that time. >> [inaudible] i am very disappointed in our intelligence community. i think they failed in many ways. i think it would be pretty clear that to explain this episode as related to a video that created a mob that turned into a riot was far-filled. at the end of the day, we are going to get to the bottom of this. we have to have a system that we trust. if you don't know what happened, just say you don't know what happened. you can say "i do not want to give that information." you can say the american people got bad information from president obama in the days after. the question is should they have been given the information at all? if you can d

has $30 billion in damage. >>> u.n. ambassador susan rice is heading to capitol hill today to meet with some of her toughest republican critics and answer questions about the september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. rice will sit down with senators john mccain, lindsey graham, and kelly ayotte. >> that should be fun. >> that could be really awkward. they all accuse her of misleading the country in her initial account of the attack. in recent days, senator mccain has softened his criticism, and rice insists that she was relying on talking points from the intelligence community. last night senator graham rejected her defense but says he's open to today's meeting. >> she asked to meet with us, and i will listen to what she has to say about her role in benghazi, but i can tell you this. the more i know about benghazi, the more upset i am that the consulate was even open on september 11th. when you look at the history and the reporting coming out of libya about the dangers, it should never have been open or heavily reinforced. after the attack, i think the story we were
ambassador to the u.n. what about what's going on in the u.n. this week? with the palestinians looking to have their status -- there's an entire agenda. the idea that we're focusing on one set of talking points is ridiculous. >> i know you to be a pretty nonpartisan guy, do you smell anything fishy with this benghazi investigation or the way it was handled? do you sense any incompetence? because if you talk to john mccain or lindsey graham, you ask the question, are we talking about a cover-up or general inconfidence? >> the idea was, why did they turn down the all the added security? why did the ambassador go without adequate security? that's a real issue. why were these decisions made? the question, then, of the talking points, what did the cia provide, why was the intelligence community late in apparently getting the points right? it's not the first time we've seen things like that. it's worth looking at. but the idea that a month later, we're still focusing on this rather than basic questions of foreign policy on how to deal with terrorism in these areas. seems to me we are missing
government and the a ring government that had the u.n. security council, not security comes, general assembly, in 1998, at which their rings agree to withdraw the threats. and after that there was a parody, a couple years when the british tried to make sure they were telling the truth and had been telling the truth the but before that there was kind of a step-by-step thing. i mean, i was pushing very hard to be allowed to just do ordinary professional things that writers do, such as -- i came out to be able to talk about, talk to my readers and things like that. all of this was a battle with security forces, internationally. and gradually we got a little more cooperation, and so that got done a little bit. i mean, the thing that really, have to say this, the thing that really make a big difference to in those years was this country. because america allowed me to come here for periods of time, which started off being short, like a week or 10 days, and ended up being much longer, like too much, too and as months at a time, and litter and ordinary free life.

for the past four u.n. ambassadors to the u.n. mohammed morsi was something of a hero to the united states when he helped broker that cease-fire between israel and hamas in gaza. now what is going on. >> my, what six weeks will do. six weeks ago we had president obama saying that egypt and morsi wasn't really an enemy and they weren't really our friend. wasn't an ally. six weeks later we see secretary of state hillary clinton gushing over the fact that egypt was able to broker this cease-fire. clearly, jon, the cease-fire is great news, and i think that the egyptian president does deserve credit for brokering this. he went in to gaza, he tried to do what he could. i think most observers were a little bit uncomfortable with wh he was saying inside gaza and i think he came down on hamas' side a little bit too much. he is a leader of the muslim brotherhood. we were a little bit concerned with his actions. but then when the cease-fire happened secretary of state hillary clinton stood next to him and really just gushed over the fact that he was able to produce this cease-fire. then you saw -- jon: d

that the president might be nominating susan rice, our u.n. ambassador to be his next secretary of state. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with john mccain's clip if we can. dan, this is john mccain on -- john mccain by the way who voted to approve condoleezza rice as secretary of state. talking about susan rice. here's the clip. >> susan rice should have known better and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i would do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. she has proven that she either doesn't understand or she is not willing to accept evidence on its face. >> john: that was the man who thought sarah palin was qualified to be president talking about someone who doesn't understand. now not to be outdone senator lindsey graham, the most interesting of all southern republicans i would say came out a few hours later and t

me. she's the one that asked for the meeting. i didn't. >> don't think so. the embattled u.n. ambassador is sitting down with the senator who accused her of being incompetent and deceptive and called for watergate style hearings on libya. >> she gave deceptive information to the american people when there was clearly counter information that affirmed that this was a terrorist attack orchestrated by an al qaeda affiliated organization. >> by now you know the story. rice intimated a cheesy anti-islam film caused the murderous rampage at the consulate in benghazi, libya. not true. her assertion on several sunday talk shows was okayed by the intelligence community and caused one great big partisan brawl. soon, democrats piled on, accusing republicans of racism. >> susan rice's comments didn't send us to iraq and afghanistan. somebody else's did. but you're not angry with them. i would just say in closing that it is a shame that any time something goes wrong, they pick on women and minorities. i have a real issue with that. >> yet when asked about mccain, rice was conciliatory. >>
fearlessly stood up to the drug cartels found murdered. >>> and face-to-face behind closed doors today, u.n. ambassador susan rice takes on one of her sharpest critics, senator john mccain, over her actions after the benghazi attack. good morning and welcome to "early start," i'm deborah feyerick in for john berman. >> really nice to have you. >> i'm so glad to be here. >> i'm zoraida sambolin. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. first, congress back to work, and back to bickering. in just under 35 days, america hits the fiscal cliff. that triggers severe spending cuts and tax hikes. several top republicans are now defying party politics and signaling a willingness to consider increasing tax revenues to get a budget deal done. but when the lame duck senate got back in session yesterday it sure sounded like the same old broken record. >> the senate has spoken. president obama has spoken. he's promising he will not sign any bill that mortgages our future to pay for handouts to the wealthiest 2% of americans. i only hope house republicans have been listening. >> we've been responsible, even as we've r
for u.n. ambassador then was a recess appointee. no way the president will nominate a secretary of state as a recess appointee. you cannot with credible lead diplomacy over the world. we'll have a debate tomorrow. there is a debate in the general assembly of the united nations on palestinian statehood. it is symbolic but now france is going along with the rest of the general assembly, the united states and israel and a few others will probably stand alone against this gesture considered a very important move by the sort of weakened fatah branch of the palestinians after what happened with gaza and hamas and susan rice has to represent the united states. and there's got to be a lot of weakening of her position. >> wow, a lot going on. obviously the fiscal cliff as well. the president is sitting down with a dozen chief executeties today to talk about this. some of them were prominent supporters of mitt romney. and then the president is going to try and sell his budget plan going to a toy factory. speaking of -- >> that's where i'd go. >> speaking of the budget, coming up, former treasurer
focused on yield. we have an the u.n. weight to equities. most of the equity exposure right now is outside of america. that's been a good thing for us since july and then we have an overweight to extend fixed economic and credit. looking at emerging market debt. watching carefully and still happy to own high yield debt and mortgage-backed securities. >> this is a serious question. we had peter fisher on the show, former undersecretary who said, you know, they just might do the right thing. either online or got your "wall street journal" in hand. what if they do the right thing. jeremy segal says stocks are going to 15,000 and 17,000. is that seriously possible? >> look, you have very little liquidity at year end, right, so there's in the a lot of volume in the markets so things can move much more. it's exaggerated. if we get a credible bipartisan deal december 15th you're going to have a huge relief rally into year end. >> 15,000, mr. baldwin? >> not right away. stocks are slightly overpriced. like them for 40 years, not sure about four months. >> good stuff. rebecca patterson and william
, welcome, everybody. not satisfied. u.n. ambassador, susan rice, will return to the plate today after striking out, essentially, with republicans on capitol hill over benghazi. will she have better luck today? >>> are you feeling lucky yourself? people are talking about how they will spend half a million dollars. little less than that after taxes. talking to some of those folks who are dreaming big this morning. >>> she sold 100 million records and not stopping there. dio nne warwick joins us as she celebrates 50 years in the business. "starting point" begins right now. >>> good morning. welcome, everybody "starting point" team, ron brownstein, roland martin, host of "washington watch with roland martin." why do i laugh every time you do that? >> i always do it. >> and every time i laugh. will cain is from theblaze.com. you have to come up with something else. >> i'm trying to hook you up. >> not that, please. christine romans joins us with your business. >>> susan rice returns to capitol hill this morning, little more face time with republicans. she's hoping, probably, for better out
're in a place with a weak government, you have perhaps a u.n. operation in the international coordination is also leadership. you have confusion. i think one of the highest hurdles to overcome is the residual feeling, often among ngos that they will be contaminated if they do a cooperation with the military. but most places, it's only the military but has been rebuffed logistic capacity to project not only power, but to project water treatment units and sanitation equipment into a remote area and to take people out from the remote area who need more sophisticated care. so if you don't have the leadership on the ground, it can help reach those gaps of confusion. there's also continuing intellectual political task. obviously some groups, the red cross and quakers have a long tradition of relating to the military on the battlefield and knowing how to deal with the potential sense of conflict of perspective. but i think that's a dialect that has to be extended to all of these other groups that are active. i think some are fairly pragmatic. i think doctors would have orders right now. and ther
'll have to stay tuned for john kerry. and also, u.n. ambassador susan rice, who got into some trouble over libya and with what happened with libya. that's also in question. those are the two, top candidates. but we have to wait and see how the issues play out. >> in the meantime, the libya issue has been overhanging this election. allegations of a, quote, massive cover-up, by senator john mccain, about this administration's real refusal to put to rest this issue, before voting day. >> they didn't want to talk about it. everybody tried to pin them down on that. they did not want to talk about it. i think a lot of those questions will probably get cleared up with an investigation that's now going on. and there will probably be hearings, as well. >> and iran's huge. what we're going to do to that country and how we're going to handle that ongoing threat. >> iran is huge. you heard the israelis say there's only a small amount of time, maybe several months, before they could strike iran. i think president obama, what you see now, is president obama doing everything he can to avoid war there. >>
talked about how the support of the latino community gave to president obama was really a un precedented. we would have to go back to 1996 to see that kind of strong support for one party. if we think back to 1996, what was going on was prop 187 in california, which so alienated latinos and drove them to the democratic party. president clinton was against prop 187. when latinos organized and participated in the process, they supported the democratic candidate. i think that there is -- unless the republican party comprehensively looks at what the latino community -- disavows such positions as the arizona immigration law or alabama, laws supporting things -- issues such as self-deportation -- self-deportation is a great example of the volumes and principles -- of the american values and principles we were talking about. the idea that we would make the life of an individual and family so miserable that the person would, on his or her own, decide to remove themselves from the country where they are at, where they have found refuge. that is not american values. that is heartless and cruel. th
